Julianne Moore writes impassioned essay about gun control

There is seemingly no end to the extent to which anti-gun people and groups will lie about guns and gun owners. Post links to articles by these masters of prevarication here.

A showbiz type that's anti-gun - how unusual.

So where's the impassioned essay? went to the EW link above, it just refers to a link to "The Lenny Letters". Went to that link, didn't see the article. Put 'Julianne Moore' in the site search box, it can't find anything. How am I supposed to ridicule the (il)logic in an essay if I can't find it to read. Maybe it's a ghost-written article (once written, it turns into a ghost). Yeah, that's it! :smilelol5:

It's only noon, Maybe I haven't had enough coffee yet.....

The link takes me to the EW article.
The EW article sez "Julianne Moore has become an outspoken advocate for gun control measures, and in a new essay for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter,(etc)" and then quotes a few excerpts.

The EW article is a (poor) secondary source. The original essay published in the Lenny Letters would be a (the) primary source. Which apparently the Lenny Letters didn't think it was important enough to retain.

Google can't find the original article either, though it turns up a lot of left-wing publications references to Moore's anti gun grandstanding........

I have no desire to read whatever she thinks about anything.

She's just another celebrity, actress and her perspective on things hold zero fascination for me.

Of course, I'm a crabby old guy who doesn't particularly care about the doings of celebrity, Hollywood types...

Here is another one from Hollywood that made and continues to make millions off of movies that promote violence who now wants to drool like a drunk buffoon and lecture us about guns.

Hey Julliane, you bring your 10 year old to your movie set? What movie were you working on?
Wouldn't have been anything like "Boogie Nights", "Hannibal", or "Hunger Games" where 12-18 year olds are forced to fight and kill eachother?

:iagree: x100

I'm sure they all sit around at their high-brow cocktail parties and snicker at the thought of those of us who still feel the need to "cling to our guns"............. all the while, their armed bodyguards sit quietly out front keeping mayhem at bay. Altered reality.

She should be more upset with bows and arrows. Maybe this will make ya'll feel a little better.

The hypocrisy of Hollywood is beyond mind-numbing.

What are THEIR theories as to why so many young people show no respect for human life? Between movies and video games it's no wonder kids are messed-up.

Moore wrote on Tuesday. “The Second Amendment protects the right of a United States citizen to bear arms. But a gun is a machine. And if you choose to bear arms, you have a responsibility to bear them safely.”

I can agree with this statement though. I just wish there was a way to stop these "celebrities" from using their popularity to preach their opinions. To many people believe and follow them because they liked them in some movie, not because they actually know what they are talking about. If they can be silenced in public then anyone who has a different opinion should be given equal air time.

From what I am seeing, she is essentially emoting on the subject of guns and then parroting the bull lines from gun control groups about "common sense" gun safety.

Moore has since joined up with Everytown for Gun Safety, America’s largest gun violence prevention organization, in an effort to educate citizens on gun safety.


Has she even asked Everytown for Gun Safety how much "education" they actually do? She probably would be surprised to learn that the NRA educates more children about gun safety than anyone else. I doubt she would believe it.
